Hello!!

Recently, I've been interested in getting Implanon, but my health care provider quoted it at $600, and my insurance isn't covering it.

Does anyone know of any programs/manufacturer discounts it the US that I could use to get it at a lower price?

Thank you!!!

HI ATonement,

If you're in the U.S., as your profile says you are, I'd suggest starting by asking the insurance company when the Affordable Care Act changes will be taking effect on their plans.

They change over in January.

And they actually do cover it, but my deductible is very high, so they won't pay anything until it's met.

However, it is possible that that will change next year.
